Review:

With trademark swing and verve, Ben Rudnick and his standout string band friends serve up an ebullient, jam-packed collection of whimsical original and traditional songs from Rudnick's past albums in a live recording. Some highlights among the twenty-five happy tracks: "Cowgirl Song," the wiggly-waggly "Sally Salamander," a jazzy "Juicy Black Fly," "Monkey & the Engineer" (the engineer misses the train) and "Spin," a tribute to things that turn, delivered in fast-bouncing "hand jive" style.
